In the thriving and trendy scenario of Shibuya, the iconic district of Tokyo, the Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition – the first large scale official event of this kind in Japan – took place in March 11th-12th, 2019. Spirits from all over the world were tasted blindly in groups by 180 experts (bar owners, bartenders, retailers, importers and journalists) under the coordination of the CEO of the Japan Whisky Research Centre. A huge panel of jurors indeed, one of the largest for this kind of competition! Each Spirit was judged among similar bottlings, according to a complex system of categories.
We are proud to announce that Rum Nation has won a medal at this impressive competition:
We already knew our bottlings are well appreciated in Japan from our trips to local liquor stores, and we are sure that this medal will strengthen the appreciation for them even further!
